Winner, winner, chicken dinner
Vacation is over and I'm back!
We had a great time at the beach in Hatteras, NC with my family. I have 3 brothers and we are never all together at the same time. Having a beach vacation together seemed like a fine idea and it was. Mom had a great time having everyone together. We all enjoyed it. I even had a few friend visit. I think we had a total of 15 people there over the week. Some stayed all week and some for a few days.
It looks like you had a great time too. We had lots of entries and it's time to announce the winners:
Day 1 - Cool colors - Kathy Sevebeck
Day 2 - Warm Colors - Judy Hudgins
Day 3 - Purples - Gene Black
Day 4 - Art Pack - Cherie Vidovich
Day 5 - Greens and Mistyfuse products - Leslie Griffel
Day 6 - Waste Fabrics - Cindy Pilkington
Bonus - Scarf - Shirley Bruner
I'm not quite back on the swing of things here. My friend, Laura, from England goes home tomorrow and Mom is here to go have cataract surgery today. I'll be back to sewing (or something) tomorrow.
I didn't take a lot of photos on vacation but here are a few.
There were so many flocks of these little sandpipers and I had fun watching them on our walks.
This gull loved the leftover shrimp that my brother was using as bait.
I got to go kayaking twice and on one trip we got to paddle around with a big flock of geese. That's my friend Lora ahead of me.
We had all kinds of weather. A few cloudy days, a couple of perfect days, one rainy day and one beautiful sunset. We took full advantage of all of it. We were on the oceanfront and I was able to catch this sunset over the sound from front of the house.
Everything about the week was perfect. I didn't take one stitch. I just relaxed and enjoyed the week. I ready to get back to my routine now.

I can't believe I won! And best of all, this time next year I will be back in North Carolina. Close enough to drive up and take a "Vicki" class sometime!

A good friend and her 4 sisters all go on a vacation each year in July. They rent a house and take their mother with them, they call it "Christmas in July". It's a wonderful time to reconnect with family. Glad you were able to do it too.
